Just look at the pictures of the dogs at least, to see how they are treated. I don't care how badly you hate something, NO living creature deserve that.
I don't single out pits. I lump all fighting breeds together. They are bred for a reason just like any other breed. The best way to put it is my pointer points instinctively, my lab retrieves and swims instinctively, dogs bred to kill.........kill. My grandfather was almost killed as a child by the family "pet". Though it was a Chowchow. I am hyper-vigilant around any dog that resembles a fighting breed and will shoot without hesitation.
Ignorance can go both ways.
Is the point of this thread education or to try and make people like something that they don't currently like? Pushing your agenda on people isn't a good way to go about education - throw the info out there and let people decide, then leave it at that.
The pitbull didn't just get its reputation out of no where, and you don't see people using Schnauzer's for fighting dogs... there is something in their mind that makes them the beast they are all capable of being, whether you love them or not doesn't matter.
Edit: I only single out pitbulls in this thread because that is what the topic is about, there are other breeds that are similar (mentioned earlier, as well as others).
Nobody is pushing an agenda, but seeing you what to be sarcastic, just use a little of the common sense God gave you, if they were inherently human aggressive, they would go after the humans that torture them to get them to fight.Quote:

Calling people ignorant because they have chosen not to like a dog is pushing an agenda, you're telling someone they are not right for not believing what you believe.
